Get Those Dedications Ready: Art Laboe Is Coming Back To L.A. Radio

Los Angeles' vintage baritone is back.

Art Laboe, the soothing grandmaster of sentimental on-air dedications, returns to the L.A. airwaves Sunday after a four-month exile. KDAY-FM (93.5) has picked up Laboe's syndicated show and plans to broadcast it from 6 p.m. to midnight Sundays.

For a while, it appeared as if Laboe's 60-plus year career in Los Angeles had reached an unceremonious end. His home for more than a decade, iHeartMedia's KHHT-FM (92.3), had abruptly switched to a hip-hop format in February, and Laboe's oldies but goodies no longer fit with the company's new format..

"They just swept everybody out with a pretty wide broom," Laboe said by phone.
